About the course

This is a basic course on first level diagnostic imaging. Radiographic techniques and interpretation of more commonly examined areas (foot fetlock, carpus, hock, stifle) will be covered. For new and recent graduates off to equine practice it is vital to set off with good standardised techniques and protocols in order to obtain state of the art diagnostic quality images. Older graduates will benefit from a refresher to correct common errors and address areas of particular concern.

Ultrasonographic techniques and interpretation of the palmar/plantar soft tissues of the metacarpal/metatarsal fetlock and pastern regions will be covered, in order to confidently assess these areas and to set basic knowledge for future development in less common and more challenging anatomical regions.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course you will...
1. Understand how to get the most out of your equipment, avoid common mistakes and trouble-shoot in the field
2. Understand how to acquire routine radiographs of the distal limbs, knees, hocks and stifles
3. Understand how to acquire routine radiographs of the DDFT, SDFT, ALDDFT, and SL
4. Be able to interpret normal and abnormal findings on radiographs and ultrasound of the above areas, including identification of artefacts
5. Be able to confidently recognise when advanced diagnostic imaging modalities are indicated and when to refer

Excellent run through of essential skills for first opinion and hospital work. A perfect balance of basic knowledge and some more advance information.
